I stayed here a while ago, before a cruise, and it really was the best!!! My favorite hotel that i've stayed at so far! It's beautiful! The staff was so friendly and helpful!!
When I got back home, I called and spoke to the manager to express how amazing my experience there was. i said something like, "even the kimpton pens are really cool!"
To my surprise, a few days later, I got a small package in the mail from the Epic Hotel. It was a thank you card and a lot of kimpton pens!!! how great is that???
i will be staying there again soon! i can't wait!

I took my girlfriend back to the Epic Hotel for her 30th birthday. This was our second time at the hotel together and we had such a good time on our first trip we were both worried that we had built it up too much in our heads. Fortunately, there was no let down. Everything was as good as we remembered it to be. The entire staff always goes above and beyond. We were greeted by Elisa at the front desk who remembered us from our last trip and immediately made us feel welcomed. They had my girlfriend's favorite cake waiting for her when we entered our gigantic suite. And were always there to offer help and a friendly smile whenever we left or came back to the hotel (but without over doing it).

We spent much of our trip by the pool. And as you can see by all of the pictures of it above it's amazing. The staff at the pool is also on par with the rest of the hotel.

Overall, it was another great trip and we look forward to coming back again next year.

Room Tip: By loyal to Kimpton and you're more likely to get upgrades. I would recommend the water view if...

Treated like a queen, luxurious room, staff was incredible, restaurants some of the best in Miami, and excellent spa! Couldn't have asked for more out of my stay in Miami! Can't wait for the next time at Epic!

Room Tip: Definitely go for the water view... I could look out into the bay... gorgeous!

The only thing I can say about perfection is "AWESOME". The room was big and clean, the bed made me want to take it home. We had the ocean view w/balcony and we watched the sun come up, very romantic. The staff was friendly and helpful and made you feel special, especially Christian who went above and beyond the call of duty. Can't wait for my next visit.

we arrived at the Epic for a few days prior to a cruise. We have never been met by a a more professional or friendlier staff. They made us feel at home immediately.. The double room was beautiful with a sea view. We had a little problem opening the balcony door and the i- player wasn't working. These were fixed within minutes and we were gifted a bottle of wine for our troubles. We returned post cruise to find complimentary champagne for my wifes birthday. I cannot fault the staff at what was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in.
If I had one minor minus point, I felt it lacked a more "relaxed" less " formal " bar to have a night cap in,( but thats just me)
Fab stay, and only 10 minutes walk to Miami's "Bayside", a shopping , drinking and eating location. (including Hooters and the Hard Rock cafe )

Room Tip: A double with sea view was fantastic.Each has its own balcony

Thank you for your excellent review. We are sorry to hear about the little hick-ups at the beginning of your stay, but we are glad these were addressed and fixed immediately. It is great to see that our staff placed some ‘bubbles’ in your room, for your wife to celebrate her birthday with us ‘in style’.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and your wife back to EPIC very soon.

This had to be one of the best hotels that we had ever stayed in. From the moment you get out of the cab in the lobby, you are greeted kindly. We felt younger (in out 20's) and under-dressed for this elegant hotel, yet we were still treated like royalty. Gene was a wonderful concierge- he was very helpful in creating itineraries for us and helped us make reservations for restaurants, planned out our jet-ski, vespa rental, and even had our itinerary slipped under our door once he was done. The pools were very nice with adequate amounts of chairs around, and the wine hour was amazing! They had a different selection of wine each day to try. The balcony was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. This hotel definitely felt more than a 4.5 star.
